Best Caster-Class Servants in Fate/Grand Order

The Top Ten Best Caster-Class Servants in Fate/Grand Order

1 Merlin

Only 32 summon tickets and 60 Saint Quartz and I managed to get Merlin right off the bat in preparation for Solomon early the morning maintenance ended. He may not be as strong as the NPC version of him in Babylonia, but trust me, I couldn't have done my one-shot kills of all those Demon Pillars in Solomon with my trusty Jeanne Alter if not for this guy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Merlin the dick maker

I feel like I've robbed Merlin of his much-deserved top spot in the top 3 along with Waver and Medea. So I'm going to make it up to him by placing him higher on this list and explaining why he's such a grandly exceptional Caster. Basically, he's Waver Turned Up To Eleven when it comes to being the support for your party. His first skill adds 20% NP charge and a 20% increase in Attack for your team, his second skill grants invincibility to your entire party along with increasing your party's star generation rates and decreasing your enemies' chances of delivering critical attacks with a moderate cooldown, and his third skill gives your team 50% Buster up, 3000 Max HP increase and a 100% Critical Damage bonus for three turns. In addition, one of his passive skills include being able to generate 5% NP per turn and at NP1 for Garden of Avalon, he provides 1000 healing, 5% NP charge and 5 critical stars to the party per turn for five turns. With all the statistics of what is actually a ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II)

Slap a MLB or non MLB 2030 and you got the best support

Need all the buffs your team can get and all the debuffs your enemies can get? Look no further than this 5-star Caster-class Servant, aka Waver Velvet. And since his NP gain is pretty efficient in terms of Skills (not only for himself, but the entire team), you can rack up enough charged-up Noble Phantasm attacks for the final battle of a quest. Especially his OP debuffing Noble Phantasm Formation of No Return. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

His skill is very useful. There are so many buffs for your team, and his NP "Unreturning Formation" is so many debuffs to all enemy

3 Tamamo no Mae

MIKON! So since Tamamo no Mae (or Casko, as Nero refers to her as) is coming out next week for the US Halloween campaign, let's take a good luck at what makes her a fearsome Servant (and waifu). Naturally, as a Caster, her card set is Arts-based, so not only is it easy to build up NP charge, but she's especially vital if you use an Arts-based party of Servants (ex. Tamamo no Mae, Zhuge Liang, and Vlad III). Her skill set is not too bad, as she can drain an enemy's NP gauge by 1 bar, increase her own defense for 3 turns and also increase her defense by 30% for 1 turn only, and increase 1 ally's Arts card performance for 3 turns (and heal ally's HP post-interlude). Now probably what makes her stand out the most is her Noble Phantasm. Using her Noble Phantasm, she can help refill all allies' HP gauges AND reduce all allies' skill cooldowns by 1 turn. It may not sound like much, but considering it's easy to spam her Noble Phantasm, you can make pretty good use of using skills on a more ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Medea

Only three words can describe her Noble Phantasm Rule Breaker: SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! She may not deal the most damage when it comes to a Caster-class Servant, but if you expertly use her NP gain to your advantage, you can remove enemy buffs without a hitch in nigh-rapid succession! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Gilgamesh (Caster)

His skillset is perfect to art team. No doubt of it...

He is Gilgamesh and really fits well in other arts team. Can't wait to roll for him during Babylonia.


6 Illyasviel von Einzbern Illyasviel von Einzbern is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is also the main protagonist of an alternate universe spin-off of the Fate/stay night visual novel by Type-Moon called Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya.

Her NP is hits hard on top of being able t o charge her gauge quick thanks to her AAAQB deck but that means she isn't able to buster brave chain however that really isn't a problem thanks to her first skill which gives buster up, her second skill gives her invincibility and boosts survival while her third skill makes good support as it heals and gives buffs and debugging immunity

7 Cu Chulainn (Caster)

Last man standing with low cost

Best man.

8 Leonardo Da Vinci


-Sekai requiem

9 Mephistopheles
10 Hans Christian Andersen

Although not having much damage capability compared to El Melloi or Helena, Anderson's Noble Phantasm offers the team offers a 20-40% offensive/defensive buff and a 1000-3000 (per turn) heal. With good NP generation per hit and his Rapid Casting skill, Hans is able to spam his NP fairly quickly. Due to his deck and skillset, Hans will usually find himself in teams that are built around a crit dealer or teams that have servants sporting triple arts decks. Although you won't be using Anderson to deal damage, he allows his teammates to do so through his immense utility. His low rarity means that his party cost is relatively low (giving more headroom for better servants/CEs) and an NP5 Hans is easily attainable compared to higher rated servants. Hans is definitely a must have servant for those looking for a cheap Waver/Helena alternative especially for NA players and newcomers since he offers such a wide array of tools in his set.

Hans may not be over the 2 giants that are Memerlin and Waver, but he's may actually be the 3rd giant as a support. with his spameable or insta NP will helps everyones survability, and that atk+,def+, and that cool heal will come nice. Also, his low cost would help to get those 5* servants getting those hit-hard 5* ce's
On the other hand, he has not that high hp nor damage, so youll get some trouble as the game ascend in dificulty.

The Contenders

11 Nursery Rhyme

You just HAD to spook me when I was trying to go for Waver during the Fate/Accel Zero Order event... Well, at least you'll have some use for me in the Prisma Causeway collaboration event and the Christmas 2018 event... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She can be used as a critter in an Arts Crit team similar to Vlad but not as much firepower

She's pretty powerful, and cute

*FBI sirens*

12 Scathach-Skadi

Her buff are the best of their type.
Also only Quick Support 5* lol.

The best quick caster

Pretty fun quick servant buffer

Step on me

13 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
14 Xuanzang

Xuanzang Sanzang (as the English localization puts Genjou Sanzou's name as) is without a doubt one of the best offensive Casters in Fate/Grand Order. Her Single Target Noble Phantasm's sheer power output is only second to Illya, and even then, Xuanzang racks up massive damage going all-out Star Platinum on her opponent. Her skill set isn't too bad either, as she can fill up more than half of her NP gauge along with increasing NP damage for 1 turn, tank enemy attacks with a self-inflicted taunt protected by damage reduction, and boost the party's NP generation rate, critical star generation rate, and debuff immunity. To put it simply, her first skill is great for unleashing her NP on the first turn if needed along with the right Craft Essence like Kaleidoscope or Imaginary Around, her second skill is great for taunting and tanking, and her third skill is pretty decent for the party overall. I won't roll for her now since she'll be added to the Story Summon later after Camelot, but she ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 Nero Claudius (Caster)

Buster Buster Buster!

Waifu, good niche as a buster caster

16 Helena Blavatsky

Helps me farm

Cute voice and stylish animation for her NP along with incredible support for servants with bad NP gain like Lancelot

Although I don't possess her (much to my misfortune) she's a extremely good support for an SR. Being basically a SR version of Waver, she gives a good charge of np (10-20% depending on level) and a command card effectiveness buff as well as a crit star gen skill which has a chance at charging her np gauge. If she's on your friend list and you need a support, she'll do. And if you have her, imagine what you could do if you had a Lancelot (or any other AoE wave clearer) paired with a SECOND Lancelot support especially if you both have a Kscope CE and even if you don't it would help her teammates a lot. While not being better than Waver, she's one of tge best np gain supports

17 Nitocris

Waifu and Instant Death

Kawaii tsundere I think

18 Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova
19 Paracelsus
20 Queen of Sheba
21 Elizabeth Bathory (Halloween)
22 Marie Antoinette (Caster)

Totally cute.

23 Scheherazade
24 William Shakespeare
25 Medea (Lily)
26 Murasaki Shikibu
27 Charles Babbage

Has great self buffs

28 Avicebron
29 Sieg

The event saved him from the hate.

30 Irisviel (Dress of Heaven)

Irisviel, A great Free servant if You completed the event. with a Nice noble phantasm, and Awesome lore and referances.

31 Geronimo

Great NP. Good design.

32 Circe
33 Thomas Edison
34 Miyu Edelfelt
35 Gilles de Rais

You know, I think I've been too generous with this Servant's spot on the list. His skills barely serve any vital use to him as a Caster and he can't compete with other well-regarded low-rarity Casters like Medea and Hans Christian Andersen. Sorry, Gilles, but I got to take you down a notch. A LONG notch, to be exact. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
